Enduring Faith




TURN SOUND ON

Enduring Faith -

A bouquet of red sweet peas, a red zinnia, a red poppy, blue bachelor buttons and blue forget-me-nots.


The sweet pea is associated with delicate pleasure, blissful pleasure, departure, goodbye, thank you for the lovely time and adieu.

The zinnia flower has several meanings including thoughts of friends, endurance, daily remembrance, goodness and lasting affection.

The poppy symbolizes remembrance.

Bachelor Buttons symbolism - bachelors wore this flower when they were attracted to a maiden and sought to court her. The longer the bachelor donned the flower and the longer the flower bloomed told of the degree of his love. If the flower faded away quickly it was not meant to be.

Forget-me-not symbolism - The Forget-Me-Not flower represents true faithful love, fond memories and hope.

Purple Poetry





TURN ON SOUND

Purple PoetryThis is a bouquet of pansies, sweet peas,
larkspur that are laying on petunias and ferns.

Purple is the most powerful visible wavelength of electromagnetic energy. It’s just a few steps away from x-rays and gamma rays. Perhaps this explains why purple is associated with supernatural energy and the cosmos than with the physical world as we know it. 

The flower symbolism associated with the pansy is merriment
and you occupy my thoughts. The pansy is also considered a flower of remembrance, togetherness and union. Pansies help evoke fond memories of our loved ones. It is believed if a pansy is placed over someone’s eyes while sleeping, upon waking that person will fall in love with the first person to appear.   

The sweet pea flower is associated with delicate pleasure, blissful pleasure, departure, goodbye, thank you for the lovely time and adieu.

Larkspur symbolizes carefree summer days, feeling lighthearted, and just having fun! 

Petunias express your desire to spend time with someone
because you find their company soothing and peaceful.

Ferns symbolize sincerity towards others. It can also be a
symbol of magic, fascination, confidence, shelter, discretion, reverie and a secret bond of love.  Ferns are prehistoric living before the age of the dinosaurs!

Flashback Friday

This is a design of a pansy on a yellow daisy. 

Blissful Beliefs

The flower symbolism associated with the pansy is also merriment and you occupy my thoughts. The pansy is also considered a flower of remembrance, togetherness and union. Pansies help evoke fond memories of our loved ones. It is believed if a pansy is placed over someone’s eyes while sleeping, upon waking that person will fall in love with the first person to appear.

The pansy’s appearance and name made it a symbol of “freethought” and has been for some time.  It is a philosophical perspective that states that one’s opinions should be based on logic and science and is void of emotion, convention and authority.  If you subscribe to this viewpoint you are known as a “free thinker”.

The daisy represents purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity and new beginnings.  The Gerbera daisy, the fifth most popular flower in the world, has the added symbolism of cheerfulness!
The word daisy comes from the Old English word dægeseage, meaning "day's eye".   The daisy was thusly named because at night the petals close over the yellow center and during the day they re-open or “awaken”.  This is how the fun saying “as fresh as a daisy” was created; it infers that someone had a restful sleep.

The daisy is actually two flowers in one, called a composite flower.  The yellow center is called the disc floret and the outer petals are the ray floret.  Because they are actually two flower in one, blending it such beautiful harmony the also symbolize true love!

Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.

Delightful Daffodils





Wishing you all a delightful day and may your heart be filled with wonder.

Delightful Daffodils - The daffodil symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings and has become synonymous with spring. The daffodil is also a sign of winter’s end.

The Latin name for daffodil is Narcissus. It is believed to be named after the son of the river god from Greek mythology. Narcissus was
celebrated for his beauty, but he was arrogant. The goddess Nemesis noticed this and lured him to a pool where he fell in love with his own reflection.

Some sources say while he was staring at his reflection nymphs transformed him into a narcissus flower to get revenge for how he
treated them. Others think he drowned trying to capture his reflection, and the flowers growing along the riverbed were named after him. Some even liken the nodding heads of daffodil flowers to Narcissus bending down and gazing at his
reflection.

Daffodils are also valued in China. They bloom around Chinese New Year, and symbolize good luck, prosperity, and good fortune.

Daffodils are often given on ten year wedding anniversaries to mean joy, cheerfulness, and happiness.

Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i
